Professor emerita in solo show at P.Bibeau Gallery
Professor emerita Lucy Puls’ solo show “1989″ at the P.Bibeau gallery features five sculptures from 1989. These works, all created in one year and unseen for 31 years, construct the groundwork for what became the impetus for Puls’s later sculptural forms cast in resin. Using familiar material objects taken out of circulation by way of disposability or expiration (glass jar, discarded self-help books, softballs, patterned paper towels, her own worn out clothing), Puls intended to ‘transform the object into an idea’ with the use of wax, resin, and dead insects. These sculptures worked to reframe the social construction of the time into a 3D form composed of abandoned objects, organic binding substrates and biological matter.
